Drop in revenue

I've been making my money off AdSense since before it was really released. But recently I had a pretty major database crash on my largest site. So while I was fixing it I've actually been improving the site, for instance I was running SMF for my forums and have since changed that to IP.Board.

The site is looking better than ever but my revenue has gone down and my traffic has taken a hit. Funny thing is that the CPM is down on all my content not just the pages that were effected by the crash.

Can it at all have to do with Googles Indexing of those changed pages... could that at all effect the ads on other pages?

Extremely disappointing earnings now with average EPC down 20%, interestingly I have had several regular AdWords advertisers contacting me direct requesting my rates.

It's not a route I really want to go down however it may be one I shall now be forced to take.

Interestingly I had one contact me last week as well and have done a deal. I would rather not deal directly with them myself either, but the targeting has become so bad lately that it's the only way for me to go.
There's something broken in Adsense land.

Does anyone else have minimums on their CPM? If so, has that helped or hurt your overall income?

Any adwords people up in here that call tell us if they paying less or is there any new featured introduce in the last month that can explain such low level of clicks
